Octavio R. Elias

Octavio was always a gentleman. I talked with him more several years ago. I expressed once that I was going to Senora and he gave me names to look to for hospitality. His history was superb. The most about him that I shall remember is his kindness. My prayers go to Bodine and the family.

Dear Bodine-

Everyone who knew Octavio during his lifetime has been left with a lot of wonderful memories. To Irma and I, both of you have been very special friends.

I first met Octavio during the effort to control development of the beachfront lots on Fifth and Mandalay Beach roads. He called me several times for lunch and I tried to ignore him but he was not a man to be easily dissuaded.

When we finally met, a special friendship developed that felt as comfortable as one that had existed since childhood.

During subsequent elections I was a recipient of his un-wavering support and encouragement. He was very comfortable with politics and baseball and understood what it takes to win.

The last time Irma and I shared him with you was in the playoffs at Dodger Stadium last fall prior to the world series when you took him in a wheel chair. It was very evident to us how much you cared for him and loved him.

I will always remember his unwavering loyalty, humor, strenghth, love of life, devotion to animals and to the Dodgers. I will never again sit at Dodger Stadium without thinking of him.

Go Blue y Adios, mi General!
